COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Sampling and rating beers is so much more than just getting on to the next beer. A very important part is going back to your favorite beer and sharing it with friends. I want to thank all my friends that have helped me reach the milestone of 20,000 ratings and given me great insight into the magical world of beer. I wish I could share this beer with all of you, since the beer you have in your hand is my new favorite. I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy! Jens Ungstrup

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 1, 2011
Hopfig-getreidiger Antrunk, der sich im Mittelteil deutlich steigert. Das sehr blumige Aroma wird dann noch süß und somit hochsüffig, erst zum Ende bitter, auch hier überwiegt aber der starke und doch weiche Hopfen. Lang anhaltender hopfiger Ausklang. Gut! 8/12/11/13/7/12

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2011
Huge offwhite lasting head. Hazy amber body. Tropical fruit (mango and lime) aroma with spicy grassy resiny grape notes. Dry-sweet spicy funky gooseberry taste with resiny lime notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Bitter-sweet gooseberry jam and lemongrass aftertaste with honeyish grassy notes. Really nice, and quite unusual, but a bit harsh. (0.33l bottle, Bishops Arms, Copenhagen.)

mile (2726) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Light golden, hazy average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, citrus fruitiness and light spiciness (pepper, coriander), light hoppyness and yeast. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness and citrus, some spiciness, light hoppyness and yeast. Finish is average to long, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish, faint citrus and fruitiness, dry and sharp spiciness, some hoppyness. Nice fruity citrus aroma, flavor/finish is bit sharp and spicy, aroma/flavor not in balance.

laiti (4943) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2011
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Rated on 15.06.2011
Aroma is rather hoppy with grapefruit and grass. Flavour has also lots of hops with grape and some belgian yeast. Not your typical saison, this can hardly be recognized to be one.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Bottle. It pours a two-finger white head over an unclear, golden body. The aroma is citrusy and piney, with some maltyness in the back. Citrus and pine cones are the most dominant part of the flavor too, some sweet maltyness in the back, and a decent bitterness all the way. Full-bodied and smooth. Maybe not your average saison, but it’s a tasteful beer, quenching and pleasant. Rating: 6-4-7-4-14-3.5. 110826

Bottle. It pours a creamy, off-white head, two fingers thick and with an unclear, golden-orange body. Lightly earthy and yeasty on the nose, quite orangey, piney and flowery, with a little maltyness. Some sweetness in the mouth, but quite dry, nicely carbonated and full-bodied. Fine bitterness in the flavor, pine cones and orange peel. Lasting bitterness in the end. Certainly a nice saison, but not very saison-ish if you are to use the Belgians as a reference. 111029

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Bottle @ Yngwies place, courtesy of Yngwie. :-) Big foamy white head covering a slightly hazy deep straw yellow orange. Nose is caramel, straw, saison yeast, hints of strawberry and pale malts. Nice and fruity aroma. Dry, grassy hops, strawberry, white pepper, straw and pale malts. Except for a dry start, this is a nice and very fruity saison. Me like a lot.

jaghana (3488) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle 50cl from Papsoe thanks a lot. A slightly cloudy golden beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is yeast like, hopy and on grapefruit. Aroma is grassy and very hopy with lemon and grapefruit notes, some diacetyl and oxydation notes. High bitterness at the finish with lemon fruit notes, not my favorite hops, too much grapefruit.
